A powerful witch from a long line, she is a natural bane against demons. Note she is capped offensively against everyone, but defensively she is only capped against demons. Against all other beings, she PL 9 due to her fortitude and will, PL 4 on the dodge/parry and toughness scale. Description of Powers:
Nightshade is a powerful witch with extensive training in witchcraft, herbilism, medical treatments and in judo for self defense. She is a living bane to all demons, her spells cause more harm to them, they have a hard time touching her, let alone hurting her and just coming into contact with her can cause them supernatural burns or even slay them.
She has received treatments over the years which make her highly resistant to all forms of diseases and poisons, she can quickly craft and cast ritual magic, focus to detect magic and the exact type of spell cast and even passively sense magic and demons.
Her witchcraft spells focus mainly on affecting the minds of others, from reading their thoughts and clouding them so they sense what she wishes for them to, to placing them to sleep, robbing them of their sight for a time and even erasing specific memories. She can give powerful blessings of health and transform beings in numerous ways. An attack she rarely uses except against true threats is the spirit shock, causing a target such intense pain through their spirit that physical wounds manifest. She has also developed a specialized spell, one used to slay demons. History:Youth in Bloom
Violet was born to a family with a long history, some public, some hidden. Witchcraft, true witchcraft including using plants to make medicines and poisons, weaving spells, etc. had been a part of their family for centuries now. They seek to help their community and punish the wicked, all while keeping to the shadows.
When Violet was born, she had a birthmark on her right arm in the form of a thorny vine. A sign of great things to come, she was taught knowledge passed down for generations. From herbs and plants, to magical rituals and spells, she was a natural. Born with a curious nature and high intelligence, she loved spending time with her grandmother, mother, aunts and cousins, each new thing learned opening gateways to more.
Thus it was no shock to anyone that she excelled in school, skipping several grades and graduating at the age of 15. College was more of a challenge yet still not enough for her. By the age of 18 she had a doctorate in botany and occult studies. But her life was soon to take a turn for the weird. Rebirth in Fire
On the night of her 21st birthday, a demon wreathed in fire came for her, saying she was a threat to his master's plans and must die. Only by a little bit of luck and always being prepared did she survive this encounter, the demon banished but vowing to come back til she was dead.
Telling her grandmother and mother of the attack, they explained an old legend dating back to the first witch in their bloodline. A demon lord was working with a local baron in a plot to take over all of Europe. But due to the workings of the witch, he could not manifest himself on this plane of existance. So he sent a demon of fire to slay the witch, only to have it banished in a powerful ritual, one which would prevent its return for centuries.
The fire demon's return meant the ritual was broken and the demon lord was determined to slay the strongest decendant of the witch which twarted its plans. Only by leaving and placing masking spells on all her relatives would they have the time needed to rediscover and work the ritual to keep the demon lord and its minion away for good.
Thus Violet fled into the night, making her way from California to the Midwest til she ended up in Midway City. Setting up an occult shop as a cover, she began her own work on piecing together what she could of the ancient ritual. Only when it was completed could she finally see her loved ones again. Til then, she found more than enough trouble to deal with and people to help in her new home. Description:
Violet is a highly attractive young woman with an athletic and trim build. Her skin is a healthy tan from working in her garden and going on nature walks. She keeps her red hair shoulder length, while her unusual eyes draw attention, her left eye blue and her right green. She seems to radiate an aura of calm around her which others can feel.
Violet doesn't wear a costume when helping others. She has various outfits, all natural fibers, in various colors, from jeans, shirts and tennis shoes, to blouses, skirts and sandels. She has a blue robe with a hood and gold trim for when performing rituals or she wishes to keep her identity secert. She has an athme which she uses to harvest herbs and plants and as a focus for magical spells and ritual tool. She never uses it as a weapon.
